ISO Burn vs DVD File Build?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, the past few days I have been attempting to burn a series onto some Verbatim DVD-9s I bought. I have consistently been running into problems when attempting to burn these. Originally, after creating the ISO file from DVDStyler,  I attempted to do a direct ISO burn onto the DVD through Imgburn, this didn't work, and I believed the cause to be problems with layering, so, I extracted the DVD_TS Files from the ISO File, and used the Build option on Imgburn, choosing my own layer break, this, however, also did not work. 

I was wondering what kind, if any, major differences the two of these might have on the burning process, and or why I might use one over the other. 

The cause of my burn failures is most likely not related to which method I use, however in hopes of eventually getting them to burn, I would like to stay consistent on my attempts, and was wondering which one I should be sticking with.

The most likely cause is you're using Verbatim Life Series DVD-9's.  If you bought them in a store, they're Verbatim Life Series.  Life Series is the CMC junk Verbatim makes.  The good Verbatim stuff is the MKM DataLife Plus series you only find in online stores.

 

Post a log of a failed burn.  That will tell if you're using the right Verbatim or not.

 

Since you've tried both burning an ISO and creating a new disc from Build mode with the VIDEO_TS and get "burn problems," that indicates the discs being the problem.  Or the drive.  Or a combination of both.

 

Also what "problems" are you running into when burning?  Probably a failure to Write/Verify at the layer break, a common problem with CMC media.

Yep, there's your problem.  Just as I thought.

 

I 09:49:52 Destination Media Type: DVD+R DL (Disc ID: CMC MAG-D03-64)

 

You got the Life Series Verbatim, which is the CMC junk.  Don't use those.  They will fail 9 times out 10.  Don't get the Verbatim you find in stores.  Get the DataLife Plus/AZO/MKM series you only find in online stores.  Those are the good Verbatim.

 

There is only one quality brand of DVD+R DL out there, for now, anyway.  And that's the DataLife Plus/AZO/MKM series.

Thank you very much for your help, I'm about to order a pack of the AZO series. In addition, once I get these, would you recommend an ISO Burn? or should I stick to the File Build to Burn. 

Or should it not even matter?

Really, it won't matter.  Unless you're writing directly to disc, Build mode will create an ISO, anyway, which must be burned.  And reading a disc to ISO means you've already got the disc burned/complete to begin with.  However, if you're just trying to make a copy of a disc that already exists (And isn't protected.), just use ISO Read mode.  It's easier.
